Online Assessment Tool (OAT) – update

OATI recently had the pleasure of talking to LCF’s Graduate School about the Online Assessment Tool (which has quickly become known as ‘OAT’).  This CLTAD developed tool is still a work in progress but is available for those tutors who request that it is embedded within their Blackboard course(s) (it will also be available via Moodle when we move from Blackboard to Moodle).

OAT is proving very popular as a look at the usage statistics indicates. Currently (as of 20-4-12) the tool is available to 86 courses and has been used to provide feedback and grading to students submitting work across 220 assessments. This translates into 6821 separate instances of grading/feedback, of which 4618 have been published to date. So far, 131 tutors have provided grading feedback using OAT and 3646 students have received at least 1 instance of feedback in this way.

The presentation I used to introduce and contextualise the Online Assessment Tool is available @: http://tinyurl.com/oatsofar
